Nothing for us, without us.

One of the more important and greatest rights of being a United States citizen is voting.  The ability to take part in decision making, regardless of which way you lean politically.  The Constitution grants people the right to have their vote counted in elections.  Regardless of race, religion, gender, or any other identifier, each vote counts the same and allows you to express your wants and desires for how best to proceed.  Especially important for people with disabilities.  As a member of one of the largest minorities in America, approximately 20% of Americans have a disability, it is important to be involved with decisions that will have an impact on you. 

your VOTE is your VOICE

Preparing to Vote

  • Are you registered to vote?  Yes, no, unsure..? 


Voting In-Person - What to Expect

You have the right to vote independently using an accessible voting machine. If you would like to use an accessible voting machine, tell an election official when you arrive to vote.

You have the right to assistance from the election officials. You can ask the election officials for instructions on how to use the voting equipment or assistance at any time, even after you’ve entered the voting booth.

If you are blind, disabled, or unable to read or write, you have the right to assistance from anyone you choose. However, the person cannot be:

  • Your employer

  • An agent of your employer

  • An officer or agent of your labor union


Election officials must consider accessibility inside the polling place. You should find:

  • Adequate lighting and seating

  • At least 1 voting station that can accommodate a person who is seated

  • Access to a Voter Assist Terminal
